NIS Lagos office

The Lagos State chapter of the Nigerian Immigration Service has confirmed the death of an international passport applicant who passed away in its Ikoyi office.

Information gathered by NIGERIA NEWS on the incident revealed that the applicant whose identity was not disclosed was discovered dead in one of the toilets in the immigration office after about forty minutes he asked to use the loo.

An eyewitness, a staff of NIS who was present when the incident occurred narrated what actually happened to the deceased.

In the words of the witness who does not want his name revealed: “He was walking up and down complaining that he should be attended to as he and his wife arrive the passport office before other applicants the officers were attending to.”

“We told him that even though he came early, our official resumption time is 9.am, but he would not listen. Along the line, he said we should show him the toilet and we showed him.”

 “After about 20 minutes, his wife became worried that he has not come out from the toilet, but we calmed her down and our toilet attendants were asked to monitor the man. After about 40 minutes, we knocked several times and he did not respond.”

“We tried to open the door, but it was locked from the inside. The mistake was that we should have forced the door open, but we were warned by our superior not to break the door until the police arrived the scenes.”

 “The police later arrived and forced the door to the toilet open. What we saw was gory. He had removed his clothes and he was sitting on the stool, but he was dead.”

“He died a few minutes before we opened the door, maybe he would have survived if we had rushed him to the hospital. “

Confirming the incident, the Passport Controller Mani Yari, corroborated the account of the eyewitness.

According to him, “Yes it is the truth, an applicant died in our Toilet. He came to our office with his wife. There was no queue, as he did not come to collect Passport.”

\We attend to visitors as from 9.am. As from 9.am, we started attending to the applicants. Along the line, the deceased said he wanted to ease himself.”

“It was after about 40 minutes that the wife started raising the alarm that her husband had not come back from the toilet.”

“We thought it was the normal panic from a woman. But when we arrived at the scene and he did not open the door that we called the police who came and bust the door open and we saw the lifeless body.”

Yari further disclosed that the corpse of the deceased has been deposited in a government-owned morgue in order for an autopsy to be conducted.

Jones Abiri: How Buhari Led FG, Charges Activist And Journalist On Terrorism

The Federal Government of Nigeria under the command of President Mohammadu Buhari apprehend Jones Abiri, who happened to be a Journalist, and he is charged with three offences, namely, terrorism, fraud and economic sabotage. The Journalist was charged on the three counts on Wednesday as reported by his legal advisor, Samuel Ogala, NIGERIA NEWS reports.

NIGERIA NEWS gathered the fact why Mr. Jones was charged with terrorism and it is as a result of the court reports that states that he blackmailed the officials at Agip and Shell through text message to meet his requests, otherwise he would be left with no choice to blow off their oil installations

He was also charged for ordering sets of crooks who called themselves activists to vandalize the Bayelsa state oil pipelines. The period reported for committing the offences is as of date back between the month of June to July of 2016.

Mr Jones Abiri was arrested by the Bayelsa state security service and he spent two years in their custody without charging him to the court of law. Immediately he was released, the charges were then brought against him some months later.

Mr Jones pleaded not guilty of the offences and said that he was only haunted for his journalism work that brings to the limelight the corrupt conducts of oil companies and the intervention of the Federal Government in the Niger Delta region. The media rights advocates have taken his matter up and have requested that all sort of court charges be nullified.
